"Math Tutoring" on YouTube

Don't know if this is really allowed since this is a form of advertising, but I've started a YouTube Channel devoted to tutoring mathematics. Unfortunately, I do not have a microphone or a working video recorder, so at present I have to use MS Paint and CamStudio. As is evident, the first video was not very good, so I will be looking for ways to improve it.

The channel is located here: http://www.youtube.com/user/P2PMaths

Only doing M1 module at the moment, but I'll move on to the rest of the Mechanics modules, then the core/pure core, etc... I'll do D1 soon since there aren't many D1 videos on YouTube.

You’re doing it free of charge?

Hi Devante;

I liked them both.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

@JaneFairfax; Yes, the videos will all be done free of charge with no intention of profit.

@Bobbym; Thanks, but I thought they were terrible... this is just something to "test out" before I get a microphone and working recorder. I already use the P2PMaths name in my tutoring business, but I'm just looking for some basic ways to promote and expand this business for now.

Hi Devante;

Sound will beef them up.

You might like to invest in a Wacom Tablet too.

Re: "Math Tutoring" on YouTube

Hi guys,

A Wacom Tablet might be a good idea... but quite expensive! In order to save money, my plan is to use a webcam (or some sort of video recording device) to film a sheet of paper that I'll be writing on in a standard felt-tip pen, whilst verbally giving explanations. People that do this are Allen Lin, Edugratis.com, and PatrickJMT (youtube.com/patrickjmt), who recently was the subject of an article. Tutoring is on the rise, and what makes it really easy to do is that it is relatively low-risk! The only costs would be transport and advertising costs, which aren't too expensive anyway (advertising a small business via poster usually only costs around 80p a week). And Easter is coming up, which is always the most popular time for tutoring.

I wonder if I could use Microsoft Mike.
